Westin Cam Ranh Resort & Spa

Cam Ranh, Vietnam

The design developed an organic language in response to the dramatic coastal dune topography. Maximizing spectacular ocean and mountain views, the buildings are designed to gently sit within the landscape.

Situated on Cam Ranh Bay, Central Vietnam, the 25 acre sand dune site the design imposes the texture and patterns of the local estuary prawn farms onto the site. The texture and pattern suggests a man-made naturalised form which can be found locally. The imposition of this form on the site identifies the extent of ornamental landscape against the natural landscape of the sand dunes which are retained and stabilised with indigenous plant species.
